I've been teaching for over twelve years. I taught first grade for two years and third grade for seven years. I was also a part time building coach at my school, where I helped teachers. I have also been a reading interventionist, where I worked with small groups of students on reading skills. I am currently a reading specialist for a rural elementary school.
I do a variety of teaching (small groups, partner work, independent work, whole group). I also love using technology in the classroom, especially with iPads. I value the importance of differentiating instruction as much as possible to meet the needs of all students. I also find value in incorporation technology during instruction to keep students engaged.
High Ability/Gifted and Talented certification.
I graduated from Purdue University in 2002 with my BA in Elementary Education with a Computer Education Endorsement. I also have a Computer Education endorsement. In 2000 I studied abroad in Bath England for 5 months at the University of Bath. It was an amazing experience!
